Lost connection with audience; now want to do three films a year: Sunny Deol
Mumbai: Actor-director Sunny Deol, pleased with the first day collections of his film Ghayal Once Again, says that he had lost connect with the audience, and now wants to do at least three films a year to regain it.
"I could make a good film. I had given my full effort to do well, and would wish to do several films because I have realized that I had lost connect with the audience, and to reconnect that I should do more films.
"People are connecting but I wish to connect with the new, young generation - that was the topic of the film because the earlier fans are anyways there," said Sunny, who was present at the Gaiety Galaxy theatre here on Saturday to gauge the audience's response.
"I'm trying to do more films so that at least three films come every year. I have done a film after several years, and have given a big gap. If actors are not visible, people won't see, so it is important to be seen for them," said the Ghayal actor.
Sunny had a release last year I Love New Year which was delayed numerous times and was set to release much earlier. Before this, he was last seen in Singh Saab the Great which had released in 2013.
During promotions, Sunny had promised that he'll bring his father Dharmendra to interact with media since he was also the presenter of the film but failed to keep his promise. "We are usually reserved, but we'll try to come out more."
According to trade reports, Ghayal Once Again has collected more than Rs.7 crore at the box-office on Friday, but Sunny wants more. "It's good but I want it to do better. But feeling very good... it's the audience's love which makes us do films.
"Nowadays, the digital format has started where people are writing such good content, where there can be good interaction, and that is what gives you the courage and hope. And that's what keeps us going, and we also do our work according to that. Our enthusiasm rises when people like what we're offering," he said.
Ghayal Once Again also stars Soha Ali Khan, Narendra Jha and Om Puri among others.
